I was seeking for a great restaurant for a special occasion and Pigalle Sandton did not disappoint. Food was perfectly done. For dessert a must try is the Ice cream nut cake - to die for!!

My wife and I had the shellfish platter for 2 and it was exquisite. Ask for the hot sauce, it's a real kicker. We sat on the tables with the Maude street view and had a lovely sight of Sandton l. Lovely atmosphere, even better cuisine.

The langoustines are incredible, as are the butternut soup and French fries. I don't think you can go wrong with food choices at this restaurant. They have a good selection of wines too. For the location I can understand the prices, but they are overpriced and service not as good as I would expect.

For a 5 star expensive restaurant, the food was disappointing to say the least. Service was good with attentive waiter's but take a while to get an initial drinks order.

Pigalle is probably one of the oldest restaurants in Sandton and has consistently remained one of the best. All their dishes are very good and the seafood dishes superb. The service is excellent with the owner there to tend to your every need if necessary. If you feel one of the dishes you ordered is not up to scratch he... More

Very good restaurant in Sandton. I was there for business, and food very good, wide wine list. I went for fish, and I would recommend. Same for dessert. Extremely pleasant service. Just a little note: the music broadcasted. I will go back again next time.

Sea food: plain, grilled, cooked in spices. Some of the the many choices in a very long list of choices. A good wine list too. And a refined atmosphere with quiet, professional service. A shopping mall is not my idea of an attractive location for a special restaurant, but I'll put up with that for this sort of quality.
